I have seen many of us farmgirls posting about bras and how they are not that healthy to wear. It seems the last few years, no matter what I tried, any bra regardless of price seemed like a torture device, so uncomfortable, but girls, some of my clothes NEED a bra underneath. I find most bras very hot, and get too hot for camisoles under everything. I think I might be between sizes too, because 36 seemed too big, and 34 too tight and uncomfortable.

I found these by accident, "Coobies". I was so frustrated and thought, "why not try them?" I love them! They are so comfortable that I forget I have them on, and are not as hot as a camisole. Under lower-cut things they look like a cami with lace. I thought I would pass the info on, because I sure do like mine. I have had them since February and wear them everyday. I have two white, a pink and a black. I bought them when they had a by one get one sale. I hand wash them (I take the "cups" out first) and line dry. They are holding up very well. I thought I'd pass the info on in case anyone else has been on a hunt for something different.

I think the website is shopcoobie.com

Most of time when I get the "soft" bras, it seems there is no separation in the cups. Are these like that?

Betty, no, that's why I like them. Each side has its own cup, with a little padded cup liner inside that is removable for washing. Very comfortable. I forget I am wearing it, but my clothes have shape and I don't feel exposed like going braless.

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Thank you so much Nicole. This is exactly what I was looking for. I haven't worn a bra for about a year excepting formal occasions. I am tired of digging under my shirt to pull up a strap and feeling the elastic scratching around my rib cage. I have the beginnings of sag and sweat collections there and gets really smelly. I had gotten some stretch lace camisoles but they just bunched up underneath and wouldn't stay put. This looks to be an excellent solution to all my boobie problems.

I have been looking for a solution for eliminating under wire bras. So is this a one size fits all type? For us full figure ladies, not sure if it would fit. I have tried several others and nothing fits properly with out the wire.

So glad I stumbled across this topic! I have a special needs daughter who cannot do buttons, zippers, snaps much less do the hooks on a bra. All the sport bras that looked supportive enough were racerback and I don't like how the bra straps show. But I ordered one of these for her and it's working well. Thanks!

I found them on Amazon but they only have small medium large, etc. How do you figure out which size fits?

I buy undies in April so I am going to search for these and give them a try. It gets really hot down here in the summer and I work mostly outside. A bra needs to support my girls but also be cool. I am rough on my bras and they go in the washing machine too. A girl still wants to feel pretty, right?

I just received mine today so haven't tried it yet. Thing only thing I can say right off is that I don't like padding in mine so those will be the first things I take out. Handy that they are removable. It does say they can be machine washed on the gentle cycle so that is a plus.

Daizy, the website is www.shopcoobie.com. I believe you can also get them at Amazon but I don't know if retailers carry them.

Iím so glad this post is helping everyone! I think online they have a fit chart somewhere on their website.

I still really like them.

Nicole,
They do have a size chart but it is only small-large. They do have for fuller sizes but I don't know that a real full figured gal could wear them. I find this to be very comfortable and though I considered myself average, I am glad I bought the large in the fuller size. It is a bit different putting it on. LOL

I just ordered two. My biggest beef with my current bras is the straps fall down and I keep having to reach in and correct it. Another is the chaffing of the under wires.

So glad to hear! Also, Kohlís carries a new one by Olga that is similar. My daughter is large busted and she and I both love them and are comfortable, too. Still love the Coobies, as well!

Were you named after Lisa Marie Presley? Sounds suspious. I had a beautiful goat named Lisa Marie a few years ago. Love the name.
